Holy Trinity, Watermoor, Cirencester

Built by Sir George Gilbert Scott between 1847-52 for the Rev. W. P. Alworth in Early English style, the building contract was for £200 although the total cost was in the region of £4,000 using a local builder, Mr Bridges. It has a fine open timber roof, dormers instead of a clerestory, carved corbels and caps. In 1852 a north-west spire was added at the ‘sole expense’ of the Hon. William Lennox Bathurst. Scott’s fittings in the interior included the font, pulpit and stalls.

Sir George Gilbert Scott carried out further work at this church in 1878 when he enlarged the windows and, in 1881, a stone reredos was made to his design.
